8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 May 2012

Belgian singer-songwriter Annelies Monsere makes little quiet fragile musical discs that you can touch with your hands and hear with your ears. On this one there are three of her own songs bookended by two adaptations of the traditional 'All Things are Quite Silent', the first of which has synths and gentle vocal harmonies that give a bit of a medieval feel...but with synthesiser! Very Canterbury. The closing take has a piano instead and is more hushed and reverent.

On her own compositions there are heady, mystical, repeated melodies and murky, church-like tones for a dark, spooky and sensuous listen, reminding me a little of a piano-led Christina Carter, or Brooklyn newcomer Heidi Harris...hesitant, spiritual, slow and soothing. In 'Overrated' she switches back to a synth for a track that sounds like a more skeletally structured take on Julia Holter's ethereal driftpop. Affecting and intriguing stuff once more from this lady.
